The Trike program is for individuals with a disability preventing them from riding a two-wheel bike and who can demonstrate that they meet the program's standards for physical and emotional competency to ride safely.
Intake screening -
A candidate must have a prescription from their medical professional that documents their disability and confirms the need for a trike.
A candidate must weigh < 250 lbs. as that is the maximum weight the trikes we provide can safely support.
On-site ride evaluation -
A time will be scheduled at our Hudson Ave location to evaluate the candidate's ability to ride the trike safely. Evaluation will involve getting on and off the trike, starting to ride from a stopped position, ability to brake and restart pedaling and ability to ride up a ramp at street intersections without any difficulty.
We currently are only offering 24" trikes and confirming that the trike fits the candidate will be part of the ride evaluation.
After successfully completing the screening / evaluation process, we will schedule a date for a trike to be built and then for pick-up. We ask that the candidate have assistance from family, a friend, or support person to pick-up and transport the trike from the shop. Candidate must bring a working lock or $5 to buy a lock from the shop.
Note: On-site evaluation will follow the shop's current COVID-19 protocols.
